### Display certain entry types as footnote.

Hello.
Currently I'm using biblatex (with biber as back-end - latest version) for my latex project. The latex skeleton I am using can be found here: https://ftp.isds.tugraz.at/pub/keith/thesis/thesis.zip.

At the moment citations are made using `\textcite{}` or `\parencite{}` for all entry types e.g. @article, @book, @booklet. Unfortunately online sources (@booklet) should be cited using footnotes and not be part of the bibliography. Is there a possibility to create a latex command or custom citation command to accomplish that?

Just cite them normally with `\footcite` or `\footfullcite` and exclude them from the bibliography with `\printbibliography[nottype=booklet]`

(are you sure that `@booklet` is the appropriate type for online sources? Normally I would expect something like `@online`)
